    To anyone who likes Korn, Deftones, NIN, System of a Down or just plain old industrial metal; I highly advise you check this band out. I just saw them live this weekend for the first time and they kicked my ass!!

    www.luxt.com

    It has general info about the band and has a link to MP3.com to check out some tunes. They are a Sacramneto based band but have played around the US as well. They are on an indie label but need to hit it big.

    Check em out!!

    PS the lead singer is a female with a set of pipes on her!! And she is Uber-hot!

    You scared me a little with the bands listed above (since I don't like most of them), but they do rock pretty hard. Kinda makes me think of Gwen Stefani in a metal band..

    For hard edged music with agressive female vocals, you may also want to try a Seattle band called DXD:

    http://seattlemusicweb.com/dxd/

    or

    www.dxdrocks.com (new website not quite finished yet)

    In addition to the four songs available for download, they have a new CD coming out shortly. Their new music has gotten even more agresssive.

    It's quite funny when you see this band live, as those who have not seen them before can't believe that a very small female can sing with a voice like this. They think the band is just joking with them when she first walks on stage. Then those same people's jaws drop open when she delivers the first vocals.

    Rhett,

    I was kinda shocked seeing this thread on the main music page. [​IMG]

    I have both Beast and Monkeydrive but cant find the old ones either. Since they are local to my area and I see one of the members around town Ill see what I can do.

    If you dont mind my asking where do you live?

    Matt

    A couple months ago I found "American Beast" in a used CD show. ($1.99 baby!) I've enjoyed it ever since.

    Rhett,
    I was checking their website and they are taking orders for a few of their older cds now. I guess they are being reissued.

    I listened to some samples from American Beast. Really liked the music, loved her voice.

    In fact, on initial listen, I was very ready to buy the album. Then I read the lyrics to the songs.

    The lyrics really turn me off. Perhaps I'm just too sheltered or uptight, but song after song talking about how awful life is, glorifying hatred and violence....ick. Songs about real life - and all its attendent highs and lows - I like. Songs that head in only direction - down - I avoid.

    For those of you who haven't heard this band.... To me they simply rock IMHO!!! Since I was turned on to them I have been grabbing anything I can by them and let me tell you it all rocks!!!!! I do not know why this band has not been spotted and signed and put out to the masses........

    Can't get enough of them!

    Rhett,
    From what I heard they were offered to be signed with Maverick but they couldnt agree on a deal. Lets just say ego and stupidity got in the way.
